This is a limitation of the underlying database, PostgreSQL.

Note that this is ALSO a larger amount than Oracle, which can support 1,000 columns per table, allows.

You should be able to to design your database tables in a way that require way less than 1,600 columns - check out "normalization" which is the technique database designers use to address this problem.  It would be extremely rare that a single object would have 1,600 attributes that are functionally dependent on the object key/identifier.
