The original location of the Bronze Whale statue, "Open Sea", was in Phase Two between Bourbon Street and the Ice Palace.

The whale was an iconic attraction in that location for seventeen years until, in 2010, Victoria's Secret opened directly adjascent its location. Mall organizers thought that with the addition of such a high profile store, a seating area would be better suited for the whale's location.

The Whale was removed in 2010, and was not re-introduced to the mall until 2015, when it was placed in its current home, located in Phase One outside of Sears.
