Yes, there is 3 double height mechanical floors that begin on the tower portion of the building. The public is never allowed to go into mechanical floors.

And are 1 and 4 WTC top floors without tenants?

But midway up of both towers I see a different lighting pattern from the lower floors (specially tower 4) which for me seems like they are empty.

Yes, the floors with construction lighting either don't have tenants or the floors are being built out.

they put all the mechanical floors on the top floors so that there is no rental space on the top that means that there are less people in the top of the tower that is for safety reasons,

keep in mind that the most people who were killed on 9/11 were trapped on the top floors

Well the crane on the tower is well above 4 WTC meaning that the height of the cranes boom is over 1,000'.
