Общий вес сооружения 704 тонны.Вес каменного ствола колонны около 600 тонн.Сама колонна стоит на гранитном основании без каких-либо дополнительных опор, лишь под действием собственной силы тяжести.

По легенде, чтобы успокоить петербуржцев, боявшихся обрушения колонны (которая стоит без каких-либо опор), Монферран каждое утро до конца жизни прогуливался под ней с собачкой
Елизавета Боева
На абаке (прямоугольная площадка наверху колонны) со стороны Адмиралтейства есть надпись, напоминающая о создателе: «Зодчимъ А. Монферандомъ».

Построили красивый забор и оградили его некрасивым забором. Теперь всё по нашему, по пролетарски.
