No, the builds will collide there.

The intent of development mode is that you install further packages
"installation" scope, etc., to avoid contention at

But if you need the "~/Library/Racket" space, there are tools like the

You can use something like

 raco pkg config -u --set name other-development

to give one of your development builds a different name. In this case,
that build would use "~/Library/Racket/other-development".
