A Florida developer interested in remaking the shuttered Revel Casino Hotel says his vision for the empty Atlantic City property includes a university that would ideally be attended by students who are “white and over 21.” That’s according to a report from Reuters via NBC Philadelphia.

Glenn Straub made the remark, which was his way of describing someone with no financial obligations, during a larger interview about his ambitious plan for the vacant property, Reuters reported.

Straub offered $90 million to acquire the $2.4 billion resort ahead of an auction set for Sept. 24, according to court records.
