I need a reference for conditions on a closed subspace of a Banach space to have the homotopy type of an ANR.

MathOverflow is a question and answer site for professional mathematicians. It's 100% free, no registration required.

You could try Karol Borsuk's Theory of Retracts. There is extensive discussion of ANRs. Further related conditions can be found in shape theory (work in the 1970s by Edwards and Geoghegan) but that requires a knowledge of shape theoretic ideas. (That is why I asked what sort of conditions you were looking for as this is taking you away from the central area of Banach spaces). 


(By subspace you mean topological subspace, right?). You may try papers by Henryk Toruńczyk (and his students).
