small condo kitchen

We have recently bought a brand new condo and there have been issues with the original layout of the kitchen. The original layout called for all the appliances to be on one wall...unfortunately, fire code issues with another unit resulted in our fridge being shifted to another wall.

All was good, until we went to the pre-delivery inspection. The island was not installed as the fridge door banged into it. Also the distance between the island and the main countertop is 30 inches. We also has a pantry planned beside the fridge, but that was also not installed as the depth & width would not allow proper flow into the kitchen.

The builders have come up with the following design (see pdf). They have made the island narrower and smaller (it was originally 60 inches long). They have also placed a cupboard on the support column. They have also decreased the depth of the pantry. I would appreciate any thoughts and/or advice.
