PDP, DW, Pearl and probably a few other companies have 2 legged hi hat stands that would probably allow you to get that hi hat stand in a much more playable position.
PDP makes the cheapest one, can't vouch for it, but I can for the Peal. If it's set up properly the extra mass gives it just as much stability as a 3 legger.
Also, you wouldn't have the latency of a cable driven remote hihat this way.

If you've got the room, moving the kick to the right side like this would probably save you the most space.
