Adding a sink to my laundry room question

I don't know If I can word this any better than the pictures. But basically I want to remove the existing stand pipe, and a drain, and add a new stand pipe. Looking at the pictures, does this look like it would work? (Note : Red would be the new stand pipe, washer would be to the right of the sink, draining to the green

Another Option would be to put the sink on the right, and leave the existing stand pipe

You can't stack the tees on the vertical stack like that. At least not without venting each horizontal pipe separately.

I think you'd be better off using a combo wye off the vertical stack, then wye off to the sink, and continue on to the standpipe.
