You could always remove it from the spacing engine’s calculations:

\version "2.19.83"

ignoreH =
   \propertyTweak horizontal-skylines ##f
   \propertyTweak extra-spacing-width #empty-interval

ignoreV =
   \propertyTweak vertical-skylines ##f
   \propertyTweak extra-spacing-height #empty-interval

ignore = \ignoreH \ignoreV \etc

  \new PianoStaff <<
    \new Staff {
      bes'8[ <ces'' e''>]
    \new Staff {
      \clef bass
      \crossStaff { \once \ignore Stem \tweak NoteColumn.X-offset #-1.175 
\tweak Stem.length 7 bes8 s }

Hope that helps more!
