looking for a hadith - "you will see the building of mecca reach the mountain tops"
"itha ra'aitun mecca bu'ijat katha'ima, wa ya-tasawa bunyahnuha ru'usa jibaliha, faqad athalati sa'atu"
Possibly imam a-Suyuti.

Abdullah ibn Umru (عبد الله بن عمرو) said:
فإذا رأيت مكة قد بعجت كظائم ورأيت البناء يعلو رءوس الجبال فاعلم أن الأمر قد أظلك
So if you see in Makkah that channels have been dug and the buildings reach the mountain tops then know that the hour has cast it's shadow over you
This hadith can be found in Al Musannaf (المصنف) of (ابن أبي شيبة) see (hadith 124) for it's entirety. It is not attributed to the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) but is Mawqoof (موقوف) at Abdullah ibn Umru, and it's sanad is ok (لا بأس به).
