Abstract: A metric space $ (X,d)$, which is a countable union of finite-dimensional compacta, is a manifold modelled on the space $ l_2^f = \{ ({x_i}) \in {l_2}$ all but finitely many $ {x_i} = 0\} $ iff $ X$ is an ANR and the following condition holds: given $ \varepsilon > 0$, a pair of finite-dimensional compacta $ (A,B)$ and a map $ f:A \to X$ such that $ f\vert B$ is an embedding, there is an embedding $ g:A \to X$ such that $ g\left\vert {B = f} \right\vert B$ and $ d(f(x),g(x)) < \varepsilon $ for all $ x \in A$. An analogous condition characterizes manifolds modelled on the space $ \Sigma = \{ ({x_i}) \in {l_2}:\sum _{i = 1}^\infty {(i{x_i})^2} < \infty \} $.
