    I don't think we use عند with hours. We can say سآتي في حوالي (الساعة) السادسة or سآتي في السادسة تقريبًا.

    It's definitely used: "عند الساعة"

    What I'm not totally sure about is whether it means "around" or is a synonym for "at"/في.

    Another option is قُرابة الساعة السادسة.

    (In Palestinian Arabic we say بحدود الساعة ستة, but I don't think في حدود is used this way in MSA.)
