Canary Wharf Group is only targeting the UK market with its new development but may look to the overseas market in 2016.

A Canary Wharf spokesman said: “Canary Wharf Residential is being marketed to a UK audience first and foremost, but it’s not feasible to exclude people who may be living in the UK with non-UK passports.

“We are offering our first residential scheme to the Canary wharf community, people in London, the UK and those who want to invest, live in and are committed to London.

“We are not embarking on any official overseas launch as yet and are reviewing our strategy for 2016, but in the meantime won’t turn down overseas buyers who show an interest in the development.”
