NEW YORK – January 22, 2004

NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2004 – Globix Corporation, (OTC BB:GBXX.OB – News) a
leading provider of managed Internet applications and infrastructure
services today announced it had completed the closing papers for its
previously announced sale of its property located at 415 Greenwich
Street in New York City to 415 Greenwich Fee Owner LLC, a successor in
interest to Heritage Partners, for $60 million in cash. Funding is
expected to occur shortly. Net proceeds of the sale are anticipated to
be approximately $49 million. The company expects to use approximately
90% of these net proceeds to purchase its 11% Senior Notes at face value
plus accrued interest and the remaining portion for working capital. The
company will record a non-cash loss of approximately $18 million.

“Selling 415 Greenwich Street will permit Globix to further reduce
long-term debt and will eliminate operating expenses in excess of $1.9
million annually along with approximately $5 million of interest expense
per year,” said Pete Stevenson, Globix’s CEO. “The completion of this
important transaction will come on the heels of us recently sub-leasing
approximately 44,000 square feet of office space at our 139 Centre
Street location in New York. We will have now finalized the
rationalization of our New York City real estate holdings and can focus
completely on our 2004 operating plan.”
