BRADENTON, Fla. — The Birmingham Commercial Development Authority is selling $72.02 million of revenue bonds Tuesday to finance a hotel and entertainment district in an effort by Alabama’s most populous city to attract larger conventions.

Proceeds will finance the construction of a 300-room, four-star hotel that will bring the existing stock of rooms near the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex to around 1,000, an industry standard to support large events.
