The Administrative Appeals Tribunal ruled in March that the Victoria Square project had substantially altered its original plans, greatly increasing the number of bedrooms.
However Progress Association president Alastair Crombie says works to alter the development were meant to start more than two weeks ago.
"It is now a complete fiasco that nothing has happened three years after completion of the building," he said.
"We're still looking at an empty site with a pretty substantial amount of development on it."
Mr Crombie says since the ruling, ACT Planning Minister Andrew Barr has failed to act.
"We wrote recently to the Minister pointing out that this development has now been six years in the making," he said.
"He wrote back and said categorically, that work would be commencing on the week commencing 22nd November."
