You would need to login as the new user and run this command (or have the new user run it himself):

ln -s /home/primary_username/webapps/application ~/application

where primary_username is the name of the account used to log in to the control panel, and press Enter.

Hope this helps!

You'll need to give the user shell access temporarily in order to access the account and create the symlink, then change it back to ftp only afterward.
