AT&T Chicago is 'Post Modern', 1980s-90s, with Art Deco features. Post Modern used features from past styles in new buildings of the period, including Baroque, Gothic, Renaissance, Romaneque and Art Deco especially and often combining two or more styles within the one building.
AT&T, now Sony, New York, is a 'classic' example of Post Modernism.

So many 'postmodern' buildings lack the grace and beauty of 30s art deco completely. Some have a bad mix of concrete and glass facades and they look so cheap and tasteless.
There are very few postmodern buildings that can successfully imitate art deco in a good way.

I would consider the US bank tower 'postmodern' but not 'neo-art deco.'

Sorry, but US Bank looks like poor design more than anything to me: Late C.20th. as much as anything though as you suspect, it does seem to have aimed for some Art Deco-esque features, especially the top section.

Some major Art Deco buildings from Atlanta.

BOA Plaza is more postmodern in its glass and crown, but the sloping pyramid shape is most definitely art deco, and it is considered art deco.

1. Bank of America Plaza, 1,040 feet, 1992.
[IMG]http://t0.************/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTGdJ2ZsWgONa2JIqlFb868SFtCRKForGFrIJqscp5er98mA_oz[/IMG][IMG]http://t0.************/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ2OPzmUb6Mb1wOqLq2berpBnEMS7F9QA5NrXXp1vIizg5MmN6bJg[/IMG]


The Bank of America Plaza has quite a few records regarding its height. It is the tallest building in Atlanta and Georgia, the South, any U.S. state capital, and in the entire Western hemisphere outside New York and Chicago. It was the last building constructed in the U.S. made to be one of the world's ten tallest buildings until the Trump International Hotel, Chicago, was completed in 2009. It has 55 floors and a roof height of 933 feet. Its exterior and crown are both brown and a lustrous garnet. The crown is topped with a 90 foot spire made of 23 karat gold leaf, totalling a height of 1,023 feet, a massive Art Déco skyscraper. Its construction was completed in 1992 in a mere 14 months for $150,000,000, just beating its Downtown competition, the Suntrust Plaza, for Atlanta's tallest. It sits right in between Downtown and Midtown with the AT&T Midtown Center. The top of this building can be seen from almost anywhere in the city, especially at night (when the crown is glowing), as it brings Downtown and Midtown closer together.

These next three are most definitely art deco though.

3. One Atlantic Center, 820 feet, 1987.
[IMG]http://t1.************/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQvsDnyWB2lqM_zIJByVu3JVvZ7cW-93vjioTZO733QVF6VRfV5[/IMG]

One Atlantic Center is the third tallest building in Atlanta, but it was the tallest in Atlanta from 1987-1992. In the heart of Midtown, this Neo Gothic masterpiece rises 820 feet into the air. It has a plain frame and the crown is tyical in form with the exception of each corner being shaved off to make room for 4 smaller sides to its green pyramid. It is topped off with what resembles a golden bell tower. At night, rose colored lights illuminate the crown. It is 50 floors high and was a lone giant for a few years. It started the Midtown skyscraper boom that is having a second surge right now.

4. 191 Peachtree Tower, 770 feet, 1990.

[IMG]http://t2.************/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTPmYGL2tq4l9WGzs_Z9yM9XEO7ecg-mSO7r_0sM-Nx8y-uqEiOvQ[/IMG][IMG]http://t2.************/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTkOsEqL3duri9eZIbG5b00XIm5D2JQCIjx4XMsW9RZ-tFrqZ4h[/IMG][IMG]http://t3.************/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQiBlwKvy9_HVUiDGAn-4w1O1Cf4gZXuUNCpnVbUhfBFN2sC_RI[/IMG]
191 Peachtree Tower contains two tall concrete rectangular frames joined by a smaller connector. Atop these two towers are what resemble Greek temples. Each have 12 columns, and atop the corner columns are four large spheres. It has an older, traditional Art Déco appearance that contrasts with the Post Modern look of most Downtown skyscrapers. It has 50 floors of office space and is entered through a 102 foot, 7 story atrium at street level. At night, the tops of the tower are a glowing yellow and very noticeable. It can be seen from many parts of the city soaring behind the foreground.

11. Four Seasons Hotel, 609 feet, 1992.
[IMG]http://t0.************/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcROio8MAB8VAT3QOoG1kSfSY82HtxR3wef3SJuhaXsv7AgVrCD7[/IMG] [IMG]http://t1.************/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRnpPXAH4j0H87y72XHbuttPJukVL9MTm1FgyKfzwXbmM83uDYWTA[/IMG]
Four Seasons Hotel, Atlanta, is a 53 story, 609 foot skyscraper in Atlanta. It was erected in 1992 and lies in Midtown. It is an example of neoclassical architecture because of the many continuums alongside its facades, creating dramatic right angles. Its walls are a brown marble granite and are topped by a green cupola resembling a rectangular pyramid . At night the sides of the building are aglow with orange lights.

I think I actually prefer neo-gothic over neo-art deco.

Those are not true art deco buildings. I'm certainly no expert, but I believe the buildings I posted a few posts back are some of Atlanta's finest art deco towers.
