About Us

The property at Poplar Crossing operated for many years as a beef cattle and cotton farm starting in the 1940’s by the late J. Lewis Patterson, a lifelong resident of Cabarrus County. Mr. Patterson built the now George Liles Parkway through the property as a gravel road to access his cattle and the farmland. Ultimately, NCDOT saw the need for a road connecting Poplar Tent and Weddington Roads, paved it and added it to the state road system. In the late 1990’s the Patterson family teamed up with Judd McAdams of RED Partners to develop the Poplar Crossing Food Lion anchored shopping center.

This successful center brought shopping and services to the rapidly growing area of western Concord near I-85. In 2006, completion of the 4-lane Concord – Kannapolis Westside Bypass linked Poplar Crossing to a new interchange with I-85 and north to NC Highway 3 at Kannapolis and the new NC Research Campus in Kannapolis.

The newest additions to Poplar Crossing in 2009 were the Goodwill Retail Center, and a second building housing Cabarrus Family Medicine, a CMC-Northeast affiliate. While members of the Patterson family continue to farm and raise agricultural crops on portions of the property, Poplar Crossing is poised to expand into the 2010’s with additional retail, office, office/flex and residential development.

Poplar Crossing Shopping Center

Poplar Crossing Shopping Center, developed in 1998 by The McAdams Company and the property owners, has enjoyed over ten years of serving southern Cabarrus County.  A second phase in 2000 added the Cabarrus County ABC store and in 2002 a third expansion was added due to demand from tenants wishing to join the already successful location.  The SM Mart joined the center in 2004 and in 2009 a new Goodwill Retail Store opened. 

An excellent location coupled with the draw of Food Lion and the development of the Westside Bypass, has afforded the tenants in the shopping center an excellent location in which to conduct their businesses with most having been there since the center opened. A variety of shops, service businesses, restaurants, and a pharmacy complement the center. Additional retail and residential development surrounding the center has anchored it in one of the fastest growing hubs of Cabarrus County.
