Abstract: Banach manifolds whose tangent bundles admit a reduction to the Fredholm group have been intensively studied in the last few years. Here we show that such a manifold (under appropriate smoothness and separability restrictions) is homotopy equivalent to the union of a nested sequence of closed finite-dimensional submanifolds.
