These LK tests were done at NIK KhSM (Scientific-Research Institute of Chemical and Construction Machines) in Sergeyev-Posad (or more precisely, Remmash). [Challenge to Apollo, p. 910)

The official history of NIIKhimmash does describe a series of tests of LK propulsion units and engines for N1, but there is no mention of drop or landing tests of the LK itself, therefore it is well possible these tests were conducted elsewhere. Possibly, at aviation industry installations?

I could be wrong but there is little on it available.
