when you are setting up your wall materials, it's good to keep in mind what category the layers should fall under... Finish trims to finish, substrate joins to substrate, and structure joins to structure.  If your entire walls is one category, like structure, there's no hope for an elegant wall join.

If the walls are set to join, pull them back a foot or so, then use the trim extend to corner tool.

Your problem is the double wythe brick wall.  I assume both wythes are in the core - that is why they extend into the core of the other wall.  Your optios are:

  1. turn off the allow join on the end of the double wythe wall and drag it to just touching the brick
  2. edit this wall and somehow get the brick into the same category as the face brick.

Since the double wythe wall is completely exterior, I would do option 1 above because this should be a control joint.

You could also use the wall join tool to cycle through the different possible join conditions.  Kind of feels like relying on witchcraft and no way of knowing if revit will produce the type of join you want, but it's worth a shot.
