# Homotopy direct limit

Suppose that $X$ is the homotopy direct limit of $\{X_i\}$. If each $X_i$ has the homotopy type of a CW-complex, then is $X$ has the homotopy type of a CW-complex?

Obviously not true if you require finite CW complexes. Are you letting your CW complexes have infinitely many cells? Arbitrarily high dimension? –  you Apr 9 '12 at 15:46
