AE SDK workflow for Xcode projects - permissions issue

I have a 48::72 error for a plugin and I wish to render into

 /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/ for Debug.

 

The problem is that since Sierra, XCode fails to build into these directories due to permissions error. For Mac developers, how do you render into $mediacore or the plug-ins directory - 

/Applications/Adobe After Effects XXX/Plug-ins/Format/

Either of these directories have a permissions error.

For reference, if I create a soft linked dir and render into it, XCode gives me these errors - 

 

Error loading /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/MyDir/Test.plugin/Contents/MacOS/Test:  dlopen(/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/MyDir/Test.plugin/Contents/MacOS/Test, 262): no suitable image found.  Did find:
/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/MyDir/Test.plugin/Contents/MacOS/Test: code signature invalid for '/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/MyDir/Test.plugin/Contents/MacOS/Test'

personally, i don't compile directly into these directories. i compile into some comfortable folder, and create a shortcut to that folder from within AE's plug-ins folder. ae parses shotcuts/links as well.

That worked for me on Catalina. I thought that may be a reason why the plugin did not load. Any ideas how the "Unable to load plugin" error can be debugged ?
