Basement drain in the way

Am finishing basement and am having issues with drain location. I cannot afford to move drain. The center of drain is 42" from wall. Base cabniets are 36". This will put drain underfoot while doing dishes etc. The slope/grade (not sure of the term to use here) of the drain is aprox 4". When I install my base cabinets there will be a significant gap under the toe kick and floor. Am getting ready to float/level the floor and am not sure how much (if any) I can eliminate. Would like to get rid of 90%+ of the slope. Here are some pictures I have taken to give better idea of what I am talking about.

had wrong dimention ty wirepuller, but still will have issue with drain. Can I lessen degree of slope of drain, making floor more "level" ? and/or how to conceal gap under toe kick ? here are a few pics with corrected dimentions.

That would be 1 1/2". You read the wrong side of the tape.
