Residents evacuate Chalcots Estate tower blocks in Camden, London, Britain, 23 June 2017.
The cladding on the five Chalcots Estate towers is similar to that used on Grenfell, widely blamed for the rapid spread of the massive blaze last week that is presumed to have killed 79 people. But it was not fitted to the standard it had commissioned.
The shock move comes after cladding used on the high rises failed safety tests and was discovered to be flammable.
A council statement said: "As a result of on-going checks the decision has been taken to decant residents from all five tower blocks at the Chalcots Estate".
She said: "At the end of today, they told us they could not guarantee our residents' safety in those blocks and so I have made the really, really hard decision to move the people living there into temporary accommodation while we do the urgent works to guarantee safety".
Residents will be provided with temporary accommodations while the work is completed, and are being encouraged to stay with family and friends, if possible.

Police on Friday said they had removed every "complete" body found in the charred remains of the tower, although forensic research would likely continue until the end of the year.
The council's leader, Georgia Gould, said in a statement outside the council's offices that it would take up to four weeks to fix the blocks that were evacuated and later added in a radio interview that almost 4,000 residents were affected.
The Department for Communities and Local Government said 14 residential high-rise buildings in nine local authority areas have now been found with cladding that raises safety concerns.
"We have also listened to over 600 emergency 999 calls made to the fire brigade, ambulance service and police to understand the events of that night", McCormack said.
"We know it's a scary time but we will make sure that they stay safe".
Theresa May tweeted her support for residents and said officials were offering "every support" to residents.
The survivors were in 20 rooms at the hotel in Kensington and the Red Cross said they have all since been able to find other accommodation.
The cladding was installed on the council-owned tower, which was built in 1974, as part of a refurbishment completed a year ago.
"Such is that devastation down at the scene, this may take at least until the end of the year", McCormack said, adding: "There is the awful reality that we may not find or identify all those that died during the fire".
In the aftermath of the tragic fire that broke out at the Grenfell Tower, residents from over 800 homes were evacuated following inspection of fire safety norms and its compliance, reports The Guardian.
