I'm planning on a kitchen remodel which will reduce the existing space between a window and the countertop. There is a required electrical outlet in this space.

- Will I be able to fit the electrical outlet in there and if yes, it is ok code wise?
This outlet cannot be moved since one is required within 2 ft from the edge and I'm trying to avoid the pop-out one.
This is what it looks like now:
And this is what the new configuration would be:
