When creating a blank Pro project from the Create a New Project dialog, add two more options underneath the option to Create a new folder for this project -  one option - Create a New File Geodatabase with the ability to toggle on / off depending on whether you will need a new file geodatabase. The second option would be Create a New ToolBox with the same toggle on / off. 

IMHO, it is just not necessary to have a new geodatabase and  a new toolbox for every single project I create.


Yes, having an options toggle is a good way to handle this.  Here's a related, specific request to allow the user to save a project without creating a FGDB.

Enable ArcGIS Pro to Save Without Creating a File Geodatabase

These two ideas are related, but different, and so should not be combined into one.  The one on this page proposes an option box.  The one I link to above is specifically for saving without creating a FGDB.


You can turn these off in 'Options > Application > General'.

I can see how it would be useful though to have a toggle if you knew you were going to need a new GDB or toolbox for that project.
