So there was no ceremony today, but since there is a big progress on the site, for example they started to assemble their digging machine(not sure how to call it properly), it is possible that they decided not to held official ceremony at all and start construction without it.
Today:

well CS has all the chances to be finished first - the building is MUCH smaller in cross-section. it's just would they want to rush it... I've heard that market isn't too good at the moment in Chicago for that sort of property. So question will they go all steam ahead and then think what to do with it, or try to sense the market...
It is also unclear how long shall it take for Russia Tower to get really going - I mean to get to above ground floors, although it was mentioned that it is going to be built with TopDown method meaning that it will simultaneously grow up and down from ground level.
But it is really great to see all that equipment on the site. There was a lot of anxiety when construction didn't start on June 12th - national day as was advertised earlier... Some believe new start date - Day of Moscow (September 1st this year) will no hold either... but amazingly it did, and absolutely quiet without any pomp or ceremony. I personally think it is a great mistake! Would Mirax built it they would milk it to the last drop of publicity!

Some information.

The company that is currently working on the plot is working on preparations. Preparation works includes plot clearance, ground aligning, construction of wall in ground and preparation to official ceremony, which is unofficially could happen on 17th September, according to security.

Aren't "digging machines" usually called excavators in English? As in the verb excavate.

Where's my beer?

No this machine is not excavator and i do not think that "excavate" is a proper verb for what it does

This is how it looks when assembled:
