The stone Orangerie already existed in the palace complex prior to 1806, and Rossi decided not to rebuilt it. When the costs for preliminary plans for the reconstruction of the palace were calculated, labor and material to rebuild the Orangeries was estimated to cost 60,000 roubles. For purposes of economy the old building was preserved.

Les orangeries de pierre existaient déjà parmi les édifices de l'ile et Rossi n'eut qu'à les reconstruire. Cette reconstruction dans les devis préliminaires était calculée, travaux et matériel compris à 60.000 rbls.

On en construisit encore des autres en bois sur fondation de pierre, ayant une longueur de façade égale à 65 sagènes. Le devis de cette batisse établi par le jardinier J. Busch montait à 38.073 rbls.
