It's a virtual square. 6' on the seating side and 5' on the slightly shorter side. And because of it's depth, it will be difficult to clean in the middle for those with shorter arms.

Mock it up and see. If you can reach to the center and swipe something 30" away, then it's fine. I'd personally find the 5' depth OK, (long arms) but if it were 6' square, that'd be out of my comfort zone.

I am 5'3" and my 5'6" deep island is comfortably cleanable. However, that may be because part of it is lower than the other for baking purposes.
